Cookillian will automatically detect if a visitor is located in one of the countries defined by you – likely the countries affected by the EC Cookie Direcitve – and will automatically disable any cookies that are set from within WordPress or a 3rd party plugin. The user will then be presented with an fully customizable alert about cookies, and given the option to opt in or out of using cookies.
It will also collect basic information about any cookies set from within WordPress or 3rd party plugins, allowing you to add a description and whether the cookie is required for the website to operate. If the cookie is required, Cookillian will allow it to be set regardless if the visitor has opted in or out. Using a shortcode, a full description of the cookies used by the website can be presented to the visitor to assist with compliance and/or privacy notices.
With the included statistics, you can see how many visitors have decided to opt in, out or ignore the cookie alert per country, for each month of the year.
